The United Way of Stanislaus County partners with local organizations...

...that work to advance the common good by focusing on education, income and health. These are the building blocks for a successful life: a quality education and programs that lead to helping children and youth achieve their potential; enough income to meet a family's basic needs and establish financial stability; and programs that improve community health and family safety.

United Way has spent sixty years dedicated to improving the wellbeing of individuals and families in Stanislaus County. We address the greatest challenges in our community through the county-wide collaboration, Focus on Prevention and local programs to provide resources to individuals and families in crisis today, while working year-round to improve our community and create lasting solutions. When we Live United we take on challenges and tackle problems others shy away from.
